Default dear God when will it end?

Maybe this is common (god I hope not) and I just never knew it cuz I dont go to Starbucks. But I went to starbucks tonight to get hot chocolate for the GF, and there was a [censored] tip cup sitting on the ledge at the drive thru. Now to be clear, it wasnt the McDonalds, spare change for the needy type bin. It was a plastic cup with the word "Tips" written on it.

Even worse, it was actually full of money. I prayed to baby jesus that someone would drive off with it

You obviously do not appreciate a good barrista.

I never put money in those things. I'll put my loose change into the charity type containers but for some reason I go out of my way not to put any money in the tip cups. Is this the way most people are or am I just a dick?

I dont tip the bartender because he did such an awesome job pulling the lever to poor my beer. I tip him so that in the future I get served quicker, or so that hes a little more generous when making my long island. neither of which is happening at the drive thru of a coffee shop.

the only reasoning I would agree with you is that starbucks servers make their $$ off of their hourly wage.

Bartenders in the biggest clubs get paid [censored] hourly and primarly make their $$ from tips

Meh. If you don't want to tip, then don't. But why so upset at having it there for people who do want to tip?

FWIW, I almost never tip at coffee shops. If the girl at the counter is especially cute I might. If I paid cash, I always leave my change on the countertop for the next person (same with fast food before I gave it up and grocery stores and stuff). Funny thing, yesterday at the coffee shop right outside Nordstrom I put my change on the counter (some really rando amount like $.72 or something) and walked over to pick up my drip. Like 15 seconds later as I was walking away to join some friends who already had a table, the 30'ish year old lady who was behind me in line yells at me in excitement to tell me I left her the exact change she needed. She seemed really over-excited by it which made me smile.
